A study of 8 Israeli population groups for the ORM1 polymorphism included 1242 serum samples: 156 samples from Arab Moslems, 139 from Arab Druzes, and 947 from 6 Jewish groups. The two most frequent alleles in Europeans and Asians, ORM1*F1 (ORM1*1) and ORM1*S (ORM1*2) were found in Jews and Arabs at frequencies similar to those in Europe. Unique to Arab and(More)
We report results of typing two population samples, Israeli Arab Moslems and Arab Druze, for seven serum protein genetic variants. Data are presented in comparison with results for the same markers in a sample of Jordanian Arabs. In Israeli Moslems gene frequencies for BF (n = 169) were BF*S = 0.6361, BF*F = 0.3343, BF*S07 = 0.0296, and BF*1 = 0, and for TF(More)
BACKGROUND A considerable body of data has been accumulated since the 1960s on protein electrophoretic markers in the Jewish populations of Israel. However, in some Jewish communities and for some markers insufficient information has been available. In addition, studies that tried to explore the genetic affinities of various Jewish populations mainly(More)
INTRODUCTION We performed retrospective analysis of 106 patients with lung cancer for which formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissues was available. Their epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation status and treatment outcomes are described. MATERIALS AND METHODS All patients with confirmed non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) during Jan 2008 to Dec(More)
BACKGROUND Malignant tumors in neonates are rare. CASE CHARACTERISTICS A tumor was detected in the left biceps of a 3-day old neonate. Tumor biopsy and molecular study confirmed the diagnosis of synovial sarcoma. The child received multi-modality treatment with surgery and chemotherapy. OUTCOME The child is disease-free on follow-up period of 12 months.(More)
